Immobile scored his second Bundesliga goal but was on the losing side as Dortmund lost 2-1 Saturday to FC Köln.

Immobile probably had his best game in a Dortmund shirt but was let down by another poor team display. Immobile's movement was excellent, he had four shots and finished superbly for the goal. Expect to see him remain in the starting line-up and start scoring more goals on the basis of this much improved performance.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Immobile had a lacklustre game, missing a couple of chances and being substituted after 65 minutes, as Italy clung on to a 1-0 win Monday against minnows Malta in European Championship Qualifying Group H.

Any hope that an international match against inferior opposition could be a way to get Immobile back in the goals and back on form were dashed as the striker toiled throughout and was substituted in the second half. He fired wide in the first minute and then missed a glorious chance when he headed straight at Maltese goalkeeper Andrew Hogg from close-range. Immobile will probably start on Saturday in the Bundesliga but will need to be far more clinical.

Immobile played the full 90 minuutes for Italy on Friday but couldn't get on the scoresheet as Giorgio Chilellini's brace saved his country's blushes in a 2-1 win over Azerbaijan in European Championship Qualifying Group H.

Very much like his recent Dortmund performances, Immobile started toothless and lacked a real cutting edge. However, when he was deployed further out on the wing, he became far more effective, making excellent runs and would have had an assist had Claudio Marchisio not blazed the chance over. This will be food for thought for Jürgen Klopp, who may find the Italian marksman more effective if played in a less central-striking role.

Immobile came on as a 78th minute substitute but could not influence the game as Dortmund were defeated 1-0 Saturday by Hamburg.

Immobile was relegated to the bench and was underwhelming in a brief substitute outing. He was very close to finding the net with his first touch but hit his shot tamely wide. Jürgen Klopp will have a headache deciding who will play up front when they visit Köln, with Immobile out-of-form and Adrian Ramos having a woeful match. Luckily that choice can wait two weeks with the international break on the horizon.

Immobile scored after just three minutes as Dortmund were comfortable 3-0 winners Wednesday against Anderlecht in Champions League Group D.

Follwing recent lacklustre performances, Immobile was chosen to start and rewarded Jürgen Klopp's faith in him. In the third minute Immobile applied a fine finish to a fanatastic lofted pass from Shinji Kagawa to score in consecutive Champions League games. Immobile will badly need to carry on this form in domestic competition where he has only managed one goal in five games so far.

Immobile missed two glorious chances and was substitued after 57 minutes in a game to forget for the striker as Dortmund slumped to a 2-1 defeat Saturday against Schalke.

Immobile has had his fair share of criticism since his arrival in the summer. The Italian desperately needed a good game to silence those critics but fell short. He was very wasteful, missing two great chances, including a shot blazed wide after finding himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper. Last season's Serie A top scorer will need to find form quickly to keep his starting berth.

Immobile scored a late equaliser against Stuttgart Wednesday as Dortmund fought back to a 2-2 draw.

Last season's Serie A top scorer is visibly trying to emulate the same form in Germany. As in many games this season, the Italian huffed and puffed in the Dortmund front line rather ineffectively. He was quiet, guilty of giving away possession for Stuttgart's first goal and headed straight at Stuttgart goalkeeper Sven Ulreich in the second half. However in contrast to previous games he did score his first Bundesliga goal, latching on to a Marcel Schmelzer free-kick following Ulreich's misjudgement and rescuing a point for his side late on. This should boost his confidence and make him believe that he can be a success in the Bundesliga.

Immobile scored the opener just before halftime of Borussia Dortmund's 2-0 Champions League victory over Arsenal on Tuesday.

Immobile has had some fairly inconsistent playing time so far this season, but the 2013/14 Serie A top goal-scorer could be coming into his own now. He'll continue to have to battle Adrian Ramos for playing time, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang likely occupying the other striker spot.
